Studies in James

I've very nearly finished my studies in the book of James; only 2 verses remain.  I've posted everything I've done in my section on the New Testament.  The highlight of the book was definitely 4:1-10, where James describes how my desires for pleasure can take over my heart and cause conflict; how God refuses to let me remain in spiritual adultery, moves in powerful opposition, but still holds out grace; and how I can be restored when I submit to God in humility.  The most amazing sentence in the book is in there:  "But He gives a greater grace."  As powerful as God's opposition to my sin is, his grace is even greater.  Wow!
